JD Wetherspoon is not re-running its 99p pint deal in its January Sale next month, the Morning Advertiser has learnt.

Next year's sale will see pints of Carlsberg sold for £1.99.

Pints of Ruddles, bottles of Becks, Smirnoff & Monster and Gordon's gin and tonic will cost £1.49. Bottles of Frascati wine will go for £4.99.

Food offers will include tuna mayo jacket potatoes for £1.99, fish & chips plus a tea or small coffee for £1.99, and chilli con carne or five-bean chilli and a drink for £3.99.

The promotion will run from 4 to 14 January, except in Scotland, where it starts on 5 January.

Wetherspoon caused controversy with its 99p deal on Greene King IPA in the January Sale of 2009.

The brewer accused Wetherspoon of devaluing its flagship brand. Some Greene King tenants were also annoyed that JDW was selling IPA for cheaper than they could buy it.

Wetherspoons later switched IPA for Greene King's Ruddles beer to placate the Suffolk company. The 99p deal re-ran in January 2010.

The 2011 January Sale is being advertised on posters at Wetherspoon pubs from this week.
